Several Prime Day Apple Watch deals are popping up like daisies on Amazon Prime Day 2024.

Amazon's big annual sale — scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday of this week — is already ripe with Prime Day Apple Watch deals.

Most of the newest models, such as the Apple Watch Series 9, Ultra 2, and SE 2, are expected to hit record lows this season. And get my personal favorite, the stainless steel Apple Watch Series 8, for a jaw-dropping discount.

Probably the best Prime Day Apple Watch deal available so far is the Apple Watch Series 9 for $299 at Amazon. This incredible deal takes $100 off Apple's newest smartwatch.

Full of features such as fitness trackers and advanced health sensors, the Apple Watch Series 9 GPS is the perfect companion for any lifestyle. The watch in this deal has a 41mm display and is powered by Apple's S9 SiP processor, which allows for quicker app responses and a lighter feel.

With the Apple Watch 10's announcement looming, Apple consumers are waiting with bated breath to snag Prime Day deals on still-relevant Apple Watch tech.

Follow us to track the best Amazon Prime Day deals before the event starts.

Best Prime Day Apple Watch deals 2024

Apple Watch Series 9: $429 $309 @ Amazon

Apple Watch Series 9: $429 $309 @ Amazon

Save $119 on the midnight black, aluminum case Apple Watch Series 9 in 45MM case size and a M/L band (also in midnight black).

You can also snag the smaller 41mm Apple Watch Series 9 for just $279 with $120 off for Prime Day!

The Apple Watch Series 9 features a spacious always-on retina display, is water resistant up to 50 meters, and has a battery life of up to 18 hours or 36 hours in low-power mode.

New Apple Watches rarely go on sale at this level, making it a must-consider, if not a must-buy.

Apple Watch SE 2: $249 $169 @ Amazon

Apple Watch SE 2: $249 $169 @ Amazon
I cannot recommend this watch enough. At $169, it's an outlandish deal. If you're not interested in paying through the nose for an Apple Watch or want to give them a shot, you could do much worse than the SE 2. This deal features an understated starlight aluminum case with the starlight sport loop, perfect for summer.

This deal also applies only to the 40MM case, which makes it perfect for those with small or medium-sized wrists.

Here's why the SE2 is such a great value. It's swim-proof — wear it in the pool — it can check your heart rate (wear it in the pool!), and it can track your sleep (which you'll want to do if you've been in the pool that day).

It also includes Siri, and most crucially for iPhone losers like me, you can ping your phone with a button if you misplace it.

Apple Watch Ultra 2: $799 $699 @ Amazon

Apple Watch Ultra 2: $799 $699 @ Amazon

This is it: Apple's best watch is $100 off the original price. The best smartwatches are great for those new to Apple Watch and folks who finally want to go big. Oh, and the case is also big at 49mm.

For a watch so big, you'll be happy to learn the Ultra 2 features a super-light, strong titanium case that can stand up to the occasional ding or bang. This deal has an indigo-colored Alpine loop. This deal is also for the medium and large band sizes.

Features: Apple claims it's the brightest display ever, with a peak of 3,000 nits. Cellular is also built into the watch, a feature you may not think you need, but I doubt you'll go back once you have it. Taking phone calls on your watch — or even leaving your phone at home while on a ride or a run — is a surprisingly rewarding behavior.

Price check: Best Buy $729

Apple Watch Series 8: $749 $579 @ Amazon

Apple Watch Series 8: $749 $579 @ Amazon

With all due respect to our friend aluminum, there's just something special about stainless steel. I have had three Apple Watches over the years, but I finally invested in a stainless steel case for the Series 8, and it brings class to any wardrobe. I only wish I would have bought the watch at such a terrific discount.

Beyond the wonderful steel of the watch at the heart of this deal are its GPS & cellular capabilities, which mean connectivity is never an issue.

Features: Always-on retina display, swim-proof to 50 meters, Apple fitness tracker, blood oxygen and ECG tracking, and, critically, sleep tracking.
